The selection process focused on the literal and obvious backyard references first, of course nature and climate change fit in between. Then in the expressed version we often use, “It happened in our own backyard,” as in being close to us in one capacity or another. Next, we moved further out to the social and political experience of what “happens in our own backyard.”  Other works are more about abstract interpretations of “In My Backyard” in a virtual sense or a place of mental comfort. Ultimately the selections are eclectic, intended to encompass the various interpretations of the theme.
